Psalms of Hope
January 22, 2023
Gavin MacLeod, the Love Boat Captain, and Patti, his wife wrote, “What an encouraging book, full of the amazing stories of Christians. We read it like a devotional, one testimony at a time. Thank you for the privilege of being included!” Celebrity Faith is a book of the testimonies (in their own words), of 57 Christian Celebrity Speakers. Editing their stories (692 pages), has sometimes brought me to tears and sometimes I have laughed as they shared the challenges, as well as triumphs in their lives. The price published on the book is $29.95, but you can get it for $20.00, plus shipping and handling of $6.00 and we will send it to you. Of course, you can donate more if you like , as I don’t take royalties from my books, it all goes into ministry. You can order it from my website, and I’ll autograph it for you. And if you would like, we will send this book to friends and I’ll sign it, too. Just write and let us know who you would like us to send it to, and we will send it with a note from me that it is your gift to them.
About Psalms of Hope
Since 2005, through the radio ministry of Psalms of Hope, Samantha Landy has been reassuring listeners that no matter how difficult their life has been, or if they are even now struggling, they are loved by God, unconditionally and He desires to shower His grace and mercy upon them. According to Romans 2:4, it is God’s kindness that brings repentance.
Psalms of Hope radio began in Palm Springs, CA on the Christian station at the suggestion of the owner, Dan Pike. After prayer, Samantha felt the Lord was directing her to combine brief moments of teaching along with southern gospel music. Only one month later, Jackie Yockey, the president of High Adventure Ministries, was vacationing in the Palm Springs area and heard Psalms of Hope on the Christian station. From only four local programs, suddenly God launched Psalms of Hope radio into an international ministry, broadcasting out of downtown Jerusalem and throughout the Middle East and Africa.
Now Psalms of Hope is also heard throughout the United States, as well as on Short Wave radio into the 10/40 window of the Far East into India, Indonesia, Papa New Guinea and other countries and into the world through the Internet and social media outlets.
With no church or other organization funding the ministry of Psalms of Hope, Samantha depends on the listeners of Psalms of Hope to keep the program on their station. Samantha does not take a salary, so all of the donations are used in ministry.
In addition to the weekly program, you will find additional resources on Samantha’s website. Here you will find CDs and Samantha’s books and on FB you will also find videos of some of the Christian Celebrities who have spoken for Christian Celebrity Luncheons.
